News to Note, March 17, 2007

A weekly feature examining news from the biblical viewpoint


1. Designed to Last

It’s an intriguing question, asked by The Scientist magazine: “What if humans were designed to last?”

2. Decay and Age: Rocks

This article starts off by revealing a commonly forgotten fact of geologic dating: “Assigning dates to the events in the life of a rock […] has long challenged geologists, as the events themselves can confound evidence of the past.”

3. Creationism, Evolution, and Hybrid Animals

James Owen, in a National Geographic News story, explains how a growing number of “hybrid species” have been observed in the wild.

4. New Eugenics Exhibit

A new exhibit at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, examines eugenics in mid-century Germany and other countries, including Norway, Spain, Brazil, Japan, and the U.S. Titled “Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race,” the exhibit uses hundreds of photographs, video segments, and artifacts to spotlight the topic.

5. Newsweek: “Beyond Stones & Bones”

This week’s Newsweek examines how “[t]he new science of the brain and DNA is rewriting the history of human origins.” Rewriting, indeed—but, as you might expect, the rewriting both contradicts earlier evolutionary beliefs and requires unbiblical assumptions! For our full treatment of this story, see our Molecular Clock topic page.

6. The Cincinnati Enquirer: “Creation Museum growing”

They say all publicity is good publicity; still, impartial, accurate coverage is much more appreciated than controversy and name-calling (which often surrounds Answers in Genesis). In this article, Ryan Clark of The Enquirer offers up the latest on our Creation Museum, set to open in just under two months and a half. We’re expecting at least 250,000 visitors during our first year and counting on people like you to help us meet or exceed that estimate, so plan your visit now!
